Presidential Elections: Support Dr.Meira Kumar

Bihar and Jharkhand governments have no choice but to support Dr.Meira Kumar. As defeat of "Bihar ki Beti" will invariably bring Shame to the Biharis and Jharkhandis (or erstwhile unified Bihar). Do you think that, people of Bihar will leave Nitish Kumar Scott - free, if Dr.Meira Kumar loses ? So, Nitish Kumar has very little option left but to support, Dr.Meira Kumar.

Moreover, if Nitish Kumar wants to fall in the BJP's well calculated electoral TRAP no one can save him in the next election.

Also, I am surprised to see Mr.Navin Pattanayak, so easily chewing the RSS bait. Orissa is a state, where there is large chunk of Tribal Christian voters loyal to the BJD (Biju Janata Dal). I am still to fathom, BJD's sudden electoral gamble of siding with the RSS and the BJP; when Mr.Pattanayak has been maintaining distance from them since some time.

Besides, the election of Dr.Meira Kumar, who is educated, experienced and very sober, might also correct some of the historical mistakes of not making her father, the Prime Minister of India.

Also, I don't think all the Muslim and Christian MPs and MLAs from the TDP and TRS will ever support a RSS backed Candidate, who acted against Dalit Christian and Muslin reservations. Therefore, invariably cross voting will take place, which might give the underdog, Ms.Kumar, a win. Support Dr.Meira Kumar, give a conscience vote and make her the 2nd Female President of India.

All the best to Dr.Meira Kumar.....👍✌

JSPL moves higher on plans of investing Rs 23,000 crore for capacity expansion
Angul: Jindal Steel and Power Ltd (JSPL) on Friday said it has signed a pact with Lurgi for roping it in as the technology partner for its Rs. 55,000 crore coal to liquid (CTL) project, but will not offer any equity to the German firm.

"We have entered into an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with Lurgi of Germany for CTL technology but without any investment participation from Lurgi in the project," JSPL deputy managing director and CEO (steel business) V R Sharma told PTI.

The Frankfurt-based Lurgi is an engineering firm with hi-tech expertise in the entire process chain of CTL projects. It also has a wholly-owned subsidiary in India - Lurgi India Company.

JSPL's subsidiary, Jindal Synfuels, would develop the project in Odisha's Angul district at a total cost of Rs. 55,000 crore, Mr Sharma said.

Mr Sharma said for other products such as methanol, JSPL is looking for technology partners from the US and Europe, other than Lurgi.

JSPL has already been allocated a coal mine for the project. The company expects to get the prospecting licence soon. The coal from the mine would be used as raw material for the project.

Mr Sharma said JSPL did not tie-up with South Africa's Sasol because the technology provided by the firm can't absorb high-ash coal which is in abundance in the country.
